UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

George :

You've posted on the DAB radio page, but no problem. We'd need a full postcode to look at you predicted reception but as your neighbour is having the same issues it's more likely the cause is there's some "Tropospheric Ducting" around causing interference, see Effect of tropospheric ducting on Freeview | RTIS for a simplistic explanation.
It can be quite variable, come and go within seconds, minutes or hours. It has been particularly strong recently which can as you've discovered wipe out your reception. Climate change is likely to mean these sort of events could be more common.
Currently it may continue on and off for a day or two more.

Please note that this is an independent help site. You should not retune whilst you have no signal or badly pixellated pictures as this usually just clears the correct tuning and you have to repeat the retune when signals stabilise.
